  • Almost perfect, but with a major goof!

    7.5
    I loved the episode, but there was a major goof, When the old Imam (Baber) was reciting the Quran, he said" wa tawasaw bi alkhurs" instead of "wa tawasaw bi alsabr". And this really messed the meaning of the verse. Khusr means loss, but the verse says "sabr" which means patience. Get a copy editor please!



    The indirect flirting between Ammar and Rayyan is cliché and unattractive.
  • A flawed attempt, but extra credits for effort

    8.0
    A muslim construction company owner in a small Canadian town rents the local parish hall to run a Mosque for the local muslim community. A handsome young former lawyer flies in to become the mosque's imam.



    As expected, when the other locals hear of this, they're reactions are a bit anxious, to say the least. The imam is held at the airport for allegedly planning an attack. The radio talk show host interprets every response of the muslims as a confession they're out for blood.



    Taking a light-hearted approach to a senesitive subject as this, is something I applaud. The jokes are not all that well-written, and it's sitcom stereotypes galore (the rebellious daughter, the crude diner lady...), but all in all good fun.



    And it has Carlo Rota in it. Who can say no to him?moreless
